Art2017 - Harlow Gallery

I am showing a selection of my most recent series, Portals, at Harlow Gallery in Augusta, ME. Juror: Corey Daniels.

The Harlow Gallery has announced the award-winning artists for Art2017, the 22nd annual juried art show on view May 12  through June 24, 2017. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 12-6pm. Harlow Gallery‘s annual juried show is a tradition that draws artists to Hallowell from all over the state.

This year’s juror is Corey Daniels, curator and owner of the Corey Daniels Gallery in Wells, Maine. The Corey Daniels Gallery exhibits a synthesis of found art and objects with contemporary artwork by emerging and mid-career artists working in diverse practices. Drawn to objects with intrinsically compelling qualities, Corey Daniels collects and presents paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography and utilitarian objects with a refined eye for patina, texture, and form.

Prizes were awarded at the opening reception on Friday, May 12th as follows:

Best in Show and a $500 cash prize sponsored by The Marketplace at Augusta was awarded to Harrison Walker of Rockport for his series entitled “Portals.” Medium: found images and objects, acrylic paint, charcoal, conte crayon, cyanotype, etching ink, film developer, graphite, gum bichromate, liquid light emulsion, lithographic ink, paper, pencil, pigments, sodium carbonate, silver nitrate, tannic acid, van dyke brown, and wax. Corey Daniels wrote, “Harrison Walker’s work is absolutely stunning, from the simplicity of the composition to the depth of the different surfaces Walker manages to coax out of experimental photographic processes. Encountering this series is one of the single-most exciting artistic finds in recent memory.”
